Cold and Cloudy, but the Crowd Large and Address Ex KÜÉf dawned so threatening ly that tbe veterans decided to pefttpone decoration exercises till Tuesday. Tuesday proved to be cloudy and cold, almost cold enough for over Notwitbstanding this and coats. the fact that it was not generally known that Tuesday had been de cided upon, a large crowd turned out to hear one of the best address e«5 ever heard here on a similar oc C ^ casion. The procession was late starting, but finally took up the march from . the Port Gihson Bank. . |a. Owen, marshal of the day, led | Capt. R. the procession, followed by the veteraus, the orator, Rev. T- B. pj 0 H oma n, the chaplain, Rev. M. E. Melvin, Company E, C. H. A. band and citizens. The graves had been tastefully decorated with flowers, and the formed arognd them and veterans repeated their solemn There tne chaplain offered a fer vent prayer, and then the crowd gathered around the speaker s stand. duced by Hon. J. McC. who paid a glowing tribute to his ability as a minister of the gospel. Much of the address was read from manuscript, but this was done in such a way that it did not de tract from its forcefulness. service. Dr. Holloman was mtro Martin, Dr. Holleman went far ^back and proved that the right of secession recognized, and that northern was states bad threatened to secede early in the eighteenth century. After making many fine points in support of the justice of the course pursued, and reciting verses from the famous war time songs and poems, he closed with tbe declara tion that the civil war contributed much toward establishing the pres ent mode of arbitration rather than the resort to force. Tbe address captivated the hear ers, and, with one accord, they pronounced it one/ of the best, if not tbe best, ever delivered here. At the conclusion of the exer the veterans were enter cises, tained and served with refresh ments on tbe lawn of Mr. D. H. Smith. Capt. Owen received the follow ing telegram, directly after the close ol the exercises, from Mr. Maurice Cahn of New Orleans, which shows that he still takes a lively interest in things around his old home: May the time for you and your comrades' final surrender be very remote. cc VARDAHAN AT HERMAN VILLE Large Crowd Greeted the Ex Governor. General Good Peeling. Ex-Governor Jas. K. Vardaman delivered a three-hours' speech at Hermanville yesterday to a crowd of hearers estimated all the way from 400 to 800 people. It was a Vardaman crowd, though quite a number of tjiose present are sup porting the other candidates. The speech was the same one delivered at other places in the state. Hon. Stephen Thrasher intro duced the speaker, saying that, as this was probably bis last appear ance before the people, he was glad that it was in introducing Gov. Vardaman. The day was a pleasant one, all, both Vardaman and anti-Varda man followers, uniting good-hu moredly in seeing that nothing might happen to mar the day's proceedings. v The two candidates lor railroad commissioner, Dr. Shepherd and Mr. R. Whittington, also spoke. Tbe crowd was entertained at the hotel and private residences free Of charge. G) public Opinion (Continued from First Page) Call on Mr. Young. May, 2, 1911. Editor Reveille: We understand theré is very strong pressure being brought to bear upon Rev. S. R. Young of Martin to make the race for the of fice of State Senator, is well qualified, both mentally and morally, has been in close touch with the people of the entire conn ty for a great many years, has oiir best interests at heart, would stand for clean government and conserv atism as opposed to selfish inter ests and fanaticism, and in short, would make a splendid man tor tbe place. Mr. Young VOTERS. Politeness. Editor Reveille: Dear Sir:—R ecently we have heard much comment concerning tbe disposition of some to disturb public gatherings by too much con versation. Certainly such criticism can not be of those who were reared in the better circles of onr civilization, and we are inclined to attribute it rather to forgetfulness than a lack of right training in the home. While the man in the pulpit, or on the rostrum, may not be inter rupted by the whisperer, there is a _ | selfishness as to the neighbor who wishes to hear, that the most care less sqould avoid. OBSERVER. Complimentary to C.-H. A. Students. Mr. Editor: Believing it is better to give the flowers to a person while he is alive, than to put them on his grave when he is dead, I wish to call your attention to a pleasant incident. I was at the Herman ville Hotel recently for supper just after a crowd of Chamberlain-Hunt Academy boys.bad bad then: sup per. s The proprietor of the hotel was delighted with the behavior of the young men and said that she bad never had a more perfect set of gentlemen at her table. She also said that she had had college boys at her table before, and on account of their behavior or misbehavior that she had decided not to allow them to stop there again, but that heu the young representative of the C. H. A. boys came to make arrangements, she was impressed by his gentlemanly manner, and decided to try college boys once more; that she was delighted with their conduct; that they were not noisy, coarse, or rude, but in fact gentlemen; that she was impressed with their table manners, and es pecially when they / were seated, there was perfect sileDce, and one of the gentlemen asked God's blessings. Mr. Editor, the above incident is very refreshing to us fellows whose school days are finished, and especially so, as it seems to oe the idea of some school boys to be as rude and coarse as they can be when they are in a public place. If you cannot publish this, please send it to the authorities ot Cham berlain-Hunt Academy, so that the boys may realize that the public appreciate their, conduct when th£f| are among strangers and have ev ery opportunity to misbehave. in W if H. a his * * * at a a as at M County JVews.

These young la dies having completed the course in music as laid down by the col lege faculty, it was in the nature of a graduating exercise. A splen did company assembled in honor of this occasion and ail were de lighted with the evening. Whether or not it is the purpose of these young women to adopt tne professidB of music, we have not learned, but that they are thor oughly prepared to go out and teach others in this refining art there is no doubt in the minds of those who enjoyed the pleasing entertainment. The proficiency manifested by them speaks in the nigbest terms of the skill of Miss Pauline Herring, from whom they have received their instruction and their finish in their closing years as pupils. As to the program we must say that it was wise in conseption both to-length and character—sufficient to demonstrate the ability of the perfomers and not so as to tire the, auditors, of character to satisfy the most accomplished musician and yet to be enjoyed by the less skilled. a is his to the of of and not fact es one oe be be the th£f| ev It Startled the World when the astounding claims were first made for Bucklen's Arnica Salve, but forty years of wonderful cuf es have proved them true, and everywhere it is now known as the best salve on earth for Bufhs, Boils, Scalds, Sores, Cuts, Bruises, Sprains, Swellings, Eczema, Chapped Hands, Fever Sores and Piles.
